Travel Tips

Discover Chiemsee-Alpenland


A world-famous sight definitely worth seeing is the Herrenchiemsee Palace. It was built by King Ludwig II, in the style of Versailles. Especially beautiful is the idyllic, neighbouring island, of Fraueninsel with its monastery from the 8th century. One of the most famous exhibition centres in Germany, is located in the old locomotive sheds in Rosenheim. Well-known pageants and festivals, amazing opera days and attractive festivals make your stay in the region much more enjoyable.

Tip: Experience Bavarian customs and tradition with a musical evening in the hut followed by a torch-lit hike.

Tip: Twice a year, in July and December, the famous Erl Festival takes place in Tirol and attracts thousands of visitors in the small Austrian village Erl. The Tirol Festival presents productions of famous operas and piano concerts – from Richard Wagner to Verdi, Bach and Beethoven.


Whether smoked, fried, baked or grilled – fish is an indispensable part of the cuisine of the Chiemsee-Alpenland region, an area rich in lakes and rivers. The region‘s innovative gastronomy places great emphasis on regional and quality food. Start the day with a regional breakfast, enjoy a Bavarian snack in the beer garden at lunchtime and round off in the evening with a meal in an exquisite Michelin star restaurant.

The alpine huts are particularly rustic offering real alpine cheese and a fresh, cool stein of beer to go with it.

Tip: Why not try the gin tasting at the Moor distillery in Kolbermoor for a special treat.


With its mountains, lakes, rivers, forests and moorland, the Chiemsee-Alpenland is an all-year round Eldorado for all nature lovers and a feast for all your senses.

Let your eyes wander to the horizon, feel Lake Chiemsee, breathe in the fresh mountain air and feel the amazing effect of untouched nature.

Tip: Find out about Alpine flora and stories on the guided discovery tour on and around the Kampenwand.


Go for a stroll, go shopping, or just go out. The towns in the Chiemsee-Alpenland region are definitely worth a visit.

Rosenheim with its Mediterranean flair is a city without a district and at the same time the district town for the rural district of Rosenheim (Upper Bavaria). It lies at the heart of the alpine foothills in Bavaria. As one of 23 centres in Upper Bavaria, Rosenheim is seen as the economic and cultural centre of the south-east Bavarian area. With over 60,000 inhabitants, Rosenheim is the third largest town in Upper Bavaria, after Munich and Ingolstadt.

Kolbermoor fascinates with its bold architecture on the site of the “Alten Spinnerei” (old spinning mills) and Wasserburg on the Inn with its historical old town. 

Tip: A special experience. Take part in one of the numerous themed guided walks.


Let your body and mind wander as you float in the thermal spas and pools of the region. “Beauty & Wellness” is the motto of the dignified spa town of Bad Aibling.

As a “health region plus” we are an excellent destination for relaxing. Alongside the fresh mountain air and crystal clear lakes, there are large reserves of natural healing methods such as peat mud baths, thermal sulphur springs and iodine salt waters.

Tip: Experience that feeling of happiness with yoga or meditation exercises in the middle of Lake Chiemsee.
